The Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority, a joint powers agency, was established in May 2004 by the County of Yuba and Reclamation District 784 to finance and construct levee improvements in South Yuba County. TRLIA is authorized to finance, create community facility districts, assessment districts, or other financing districts, construct/repair, acquire property, and jointly maintain significant levee improvements with RD 784.
The Authority’s mission is to provide 200-year flood protection for South Yuba County. Four work phases were identified to achieve this goal. In total, approximately $400 million is being invested in 29 miles of levee improvements. Per signed agreements with the state, TRLIA is required to ensure the maintenance of improved levees to stringent urban standards.
Funding for the improvements comes from the State (Proposition 13 and Proposition 1E), local developers/landowners, local development fees, Reclamation District 784, Yuba County, and the Yuba County Water Agency.
